AT&T Wins Four Contracts to Modernize FEMA’s Communications Capabilities

AT&T Communications has been awarded four separate contracts by the Department of Homeland Security for modernized communications capabilities to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency improve its ability to help people before, during and after disasters. The four task orders, which were awarded via the General Services Administration’s Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract, are potentially worth approximately $167 million over five years if all options are exercised, AT&T said Tuesday.

In a statement, AT&T said that the four awards will see the transition of FEMA’s voice and data systems, wireless LAN capabilities, Contact Center Capability Modernization Program, and The National Warning System from the aging technologies currently being used to the latest in communications technologies. The contracts will be carried out in accordance with EIS guidelines and on a timeline set by FEMA, the company added.

Under the contract in the voice/data sphere, AT&T will provide FEMA with a voice and data solution that reduces enterprise network footprint while lowering management and maintenance resource support costs. The agency stands to benefit from increased security and availability while providing a platform for future scalability, transformation and modernization options.

Under the Wireless WAN contract, AT&T will continue to provide FEMA with a fully managed solution while moving existing billing to the new EIS contract. Additionally, the company will collaborate with its customer to modernize the solution, introducing technologies like Wi-Fi 6 and other enhancements.

Under the National Warning System contract, AT&T said it will transition the NAWAS from legacy technologies to newer, more efficient technologies.

Lastly, under the contact center modernization contract, FEMA will be provided with a contact center solution as well as a path to migrate C3MP to the cloud, AT&T said.
